Security must be involved across the entire development lifecycle. Performing frequent peer reviews would increase the overall code quality and help developers exercise secure coding practices that reduce the number of reported issues in the later phase of the application production. However, considering used time and cost, the review process best fits towards the end of the code development cycle when most or all functionalities has got implemented.
Code review as a service concentrate on seven security mechanisms or areas. The process helps discover the soundness of the application source code in each of the following areas: –
- Session management.
